a republican from california, good morning. how affective do think political ads are? caller: think it is about finding a balance between the pacs and the candidates. i have a lot of friends to think the negative ads go too far. when they actually attack the candidate with the facts, i think they are effected. host: looking back at this "new york daily news" story - she's a single mother and one of the undecided voters. neil, fort lauderdale, independent college. caller: i'm not really an independent in view of the silly stuff going on. i fancied myself as a political agnostic. i believe that political campaign ads are effective if one has been in bed. -- inept. one can clearly know when one is being duped. the lady called from florida rick berg -- referred to independents lacking education. there are a lot of independents out there. the reason we are independent is because we will make up our own minds. i thank you for your time. host: about undecided voters? caller: i think the undecided voters are probably those who are dealing with the daily day- to-day stresses and they don't really unders

california. go ahead, please. we will go to charles next, who is joining us from arkansas. go ahead, charles. caller: what is -- if people would listen to what is going on, they would see that romney is doing a lot of rambling. i really do not think that he knows what he is talking about. host: ben -- ahmed is joining us. are you still undecided? caller: i am leaning towards obama because he seems to be a strong leader. i was supporting romney before, and romney seems to be everywhere on every issue. host: george is on the phone from kansas. a supporter of governor romney. good evening. caller: how're you doing? i thought romney did a wonderful job and obama was all over the table. i support romney 100%. i hope he becomes our president. obama has not done anything that he said he was going to do. host: earlier tonight, jim, the campaign manager for the president, in a meeting with reporters, we carry it on our web site, here is a portion. >> you cannot have any clearer of a choice than you saw on this issue. the back-and-forth on the military budget, romney will regret that answer for a very
to be competitive in california, oregon, and washington. one way to be competitive is to have a less aggressive foreign policy that does not always think war is the answer and be more tolerant when it comes to people who do not agree with us on every issue and be a fiscally conservative party that believes in balancing the budget. if you ran primarily on the message of balancing the budget and that was the primary message, even in california, there were democrats who would voted for you if the new york primary purpose was to control government and control out of control deficit spending. >> what about 2016? >> nobody knows what happens to a week from tuesday. we will see what happens a week from tuesday. my primary purpose is going around the country campaigning for governor romney. i hope governor romney wins a week from tuesday. >> susan ferrechio. >> another component is the senate. you need four seats for republicans to take control. it looks as if things were going -- looked as if things were going in favor of the republicans for a while. there were some sleep -- there were some controvers
have to win florida and do we have to win ohio? i'd rather be competitive in california, oregon, and washington and all of new england, and i think one way to be competitive is to have a less aggressive foreign policy that doesn't always think war is the answer, and to be a little bit more of a tolerant party when it comes to people who don't always agree with us on every issue. and still to be a fiscally conservative party that believes in balancing the budget. i think if you ran primarily on the message of balancing the budget and that was a primary message, even in california, i think there are even democrats in california that would vote for you if they knew that your primary purpose and what you wanted to control government for was to control out of control deficit spending. >> so you'd leave that window open for 2016? >> you know, nobody knows what happens a week from tuesday and we'll see what happens a week from tuesday, but my primary purpose now is i have gone around the country campaigning for governor romney, and i'm hoping that governor romney wins is a week from tu

. the president is in california. he is dedicating the seas are chavez national monuments has fund-raisers up in san francisco. paul ryan is in ohio and in michigan. vice-president biden is practicing for his debate, which is thursday night in kentucky. you can watch a number of different cameras and events surrounding the debate. you can also follow tweets that are being tweeted about the vice-presidential debate. you can see our debate preview program beginning at 7:00 p.m. the debate begins at 9:00 p.m. and then falling we will get your reaction. erick is an antioch, california. what did you think of the speech? caller: not that much. during the debate i was really impressed with the governor, but at the convention there was not one word about any of this and now he is talking like it is the biggest issue. it sounds like leading from behind, which is what he criticized before. it seems like if mitt romney twins, it sounds like we're going to funding the military- industrial complex and not much else. that is all i have to say. host: roger from virginia on democrats line. caller: thank you

: on carper to page -- on our twitter page -- margie joins us from california. a supporter of governor romney. your reaction tonight. caller: i think actions speak louder than words. obama's actions over the last four years has shown what he is capable of with our country. if he is elected another four years, our country may not be able to recover. i think mitt romney's actions shows his schools were number one. i think he should be our next president. thank you. host: senator john kerry said this out earlier tonight -- there is this from karl rove -- just some of the comments and reactions come in tonight. nick, undecided from georgia. good evening. caller: nick, please turn the volume down. we want to hear from you. we will move on to brenda from kentucky. supporter of the president. caller: good evening. yes, i have watched all three debates and i have thoroughly enjoyed them. i cannot believe people are so naive to believe that the president has not done everything he can in these last four years to make a better america for us. i think obamacare is probably one of the most fantastic king
a shot of energy back in there. host: you are a native from california, now living in ohio. california is not even in the mix, the president yesterday raising money. what is it like for you? guest: as someone who studies election law, it is great to be in a state where you see presidential candidates campaigning. because of our electoral college system, most of the country nowadays, it is a small number of states that get virtually all of the attention. we are either the beneficiaries are the victims, depending on your perspective. you cannot turn on the television in ohio without seeing a campaign advertisement, including many presidential advertisements, without being hit by a motorcade. in your station, channel 10, at 5:30 in the morning there is a six minute commercial break and in those minutes six different commercial ads ran. at what point is there a law of diminishing returns? guest: if your campaign has the money, you cannot go quiet. i think he would be at a disadvantage, if they go dark. more importantly, to answer the question, the vote in ohio is today, this week. these ca
from california, a republican there. what are your thoughts on this this morning, on the trust level of government during natural disasters? caller: my mother and i were just talking about it last night and i said i do trust the federal government. we have the highest amount of intelligent resources, first responders. we have state of the art technology in the 911 emergency equipment. we've got all of that at our disposal. but i do believe, i said mom, we have to let the states get a mandate of what they need with eyes on the ground and let them handle the first responders and when it first happens within the first few days or weeks and if this turns into a long-term disaster like the fires we had in california and earthquakes, then the federal government has established itself and can start putting its boots on the ground so to speak. but for the american people to blame the government lake blame bush -- like blame bush, the state should take care of it in the beginning. host: that is how it works right now according to a pest in the "washington post." he says that local and state o
by the democrats, we have three seats in north carolina. there is a seat in indiana and california so we feel good about where we are going. we know this will be a tight election and this is the crunch time for both parties. host: david wasserman goes on to handicap the balance of the house -- guest: we need 25 seats to take back a house and those are his rankings. there are 66 seats across the country right now that president obama won in the 2008 election that are either controlled by republicans for our brand new season the districting not controlled by a democrat right now. we feel terrific about our prospects. we have 53 candidates currently on our registered blue program that highlights our best campaigns. that is twice the number of seats we need to take back the majority. there is plenty of capacity for us to take this back. wasserman has been moving the rankings in our way. host: he also takes up the point you made that democrats are fond of noting how may house republicans were carried in 2008. and and guest: we have 53 candidates. these are campaigns that are our highest benchmarks for
being built in california now by the chinese people. and my state, my governor, brought in teachers from india, relocated them, paid them to relocate, plus the dream act, paying them to relocate. where our teachers are laid off. so i'm saying he keeps blaming bush, blaming bush. well, you can only blame bush so long, and the democrat from florida talking about, oh, the billionaires are against him. who do you think is putting up the money for him to go from state to state at our expense? host: that's bonnie in maryland. we've got an item from "the washington post" this morning. this is by paul cane, the headline, harry reid hurt in a car crash. he's got an update. he says that reid suffered from rib and hip contusions and was cleared for release by doctors, according to the statement from his office. some members of his security detail, along with a staffer, also experienced minor injuries. this is talking about a crash outside of downtown las vegas. host: back to the phones. lisa in parker, colorado, is on our line for independents. good morning, lisa. caller: hello, good morning. host:
of racial affirmative action at colleges and public employment, including blue states like california, michigan, and washington. the second major problem facing affirmative-action, of course, is the legal issue, which will be joined in the fisher case. many people expect the u.s. supreme court is going to curtail or even eliminate the ability of universities to use race in admissions. the court has visited this issue before, in 1978, and then in 2003. both times by a very narrow margin, 5-4, the u.s. supreme court upheld the use of modest racial preferences as the only way to achieve racial and ethnic diversity. justice harry blackmun tennessee said in the 1978 case, i suspect it would be impossible to arrange an informant -- affirmative action program in a racially neutral way and have to be successful. to ask this to be so is to demand the impossible. to get beyond racism, we first must take account of race. there is no other way. but then texas, univ. of texas found that there is another way to create racial and ethnic diversity. as a set of figures suggest, in 1996, u t austin con
in north carolina, a seat in arkansas and a seat in indiana and a seat in california. we feel good about where we're going. we know this is going to be a tight election. and this is a crunch time for both of the parties. host: he goes on to handicap the balance of the house like this saying that republicans by no means have fallen into a sink hole here. they have a need to knock off between 35 and 40 g.o.p. incumbents yet today there are only 35 g.o.p. income bents and only eight in likely republican category. guest: well we need 25 seats to take back the house. and those are his rankings. what i can tell you is there are e6 seats across the country right now that president obama won in the last election that are controlled by lepcans or brand new seats not controlled by a democrat right now. we feel terrific about our prospects. we have 53 candidates right now on our program that highlights our best campaigns. that's twice the number of seats that we need to take back the majority. so there is presentty of capacity for us to take this back. washington, as you saw is continuing to move t

obama campaign, former deputy assistant to president obama, spoke at california state university northridge to discuss lessons learned from the 2008 campaign and how they can be applied to this year's campaign. >> this is something of a homecoming for me. i grew up until i was in third grade, i live in lakewood california. and i spent a lot of time in this area. this was a holiday place for me. all my relatives lived scattered from granada hills to this area. this is where we came every christmas and thanksgiving and so forth. it's a great honor to come back here. to tell you about myself, when i was in third grade i moved to a two-r rivers, california. a small town. i had the same intent kids i went to school with every year until a great. when i got into high school, we were bused into the valley and picked up a lot more classmates. we did a lot of outdoor activities, camping, fishing, hunting, played ball. and so, eventually, i ended up at uc santa barbara as a student of political science. having grown up rural and kind of small, i never imagined i could work in the white hou
in libya. i heard somewhere a report that maybe california had not
in libya. i heard somewhere a report that maybe california had not filed their numbers and timed to be reflected in the latest job numbers that came out. i have not had those discussions with chairman issa our committee staff. >> you have to leave it there. >> let me pick up on the conversation of this so-called facing. he asked him about that. what is happening right now? what did you hear? >> it is interesting. ever wish i to figure out these situations. we cannot even begin to figure of these scenario until november 7. it is clear they're not thinking seriously until they know who has won. it is very interesting that he said he would allow sequestration to take effect even if nothing else happens. other republicans have indicated that they want to delay sequestration, but a better plan. sounds like he and his colleagues would not be on board with that. >> that is a big take away from this interview. he said do not suspend sequestration. the republicans are fractured y of these talks saying that we need to do what ever it takes to stop the defense cuts from happening. now you h

take control from the state of california? this is what it's all about, dr. ruiz. i and others, including partners like senator feinstein, senator denise due chaney have also been working very hard on the salt and sea. time is of the essence. right now is an opportunity to finally get the support of neighboring communities, all the way to the city of los angeles. i've called for two congressional hearings as soon as possible into the matter of the salt and sea. but dr. ruiz, this thing you're bickering about bickering is getting old. i'd like to point to people -- >> time, congresswoman. >> thank you. >> dr. ruiz, you have 30 seconds. >> yes. this is another example of a failed promise and failure to lead. she's had 14 years and we see she is still talking about the same thing. nothing has happened. nothing has got done. the other thing is -- and i think one of the reasons is because you're so out of touch, you're so out of sight. you're harder to find than waldo unless people pay to see you. it's very difficult. so we have to make sure that we have true leadership and bring pe

are not an outlet. we are a program at the university of california, a graduate program that does reporting, but we are working with different organizations. we do not really have an initiative, per said, but there are organizations that are doing incredible work with citizens. "the guardian" in the u.k. is the best example of a large organization that works with citizens on a huge scale. one of the things they did in the last couple years was pulled from public records about the way their politicians are spending money. millions of documents. they created a form and citizens volunteered to go through those millions of documents and competed. it was amazingly successful. i do not know how many thousands of people participated, but it was a lot. "the guardian" is very innovative. american journalists are trying to find ways to do this -- to engage citizens. we do not get a lot of cold calls or tips, but we never ignore. i do not know if there are journalists out there -- we never ignore a tip. i do not care how crazy it seems, how far-fetched -- we always follow up. you will be surprised at how many
